Deb Arnold, our girls chorus director, has been singing barbershop music since she was 15! Deb has been the Festival's lead section leader for years. She brings experience as a former assistant director for White River Sound Chorus (in Indianapolis) and as a current music team member and section leader with Pride of Kentucky Chorus. Deb has a fine musical ear and a great way of working with singers to help them improve.
Deb has been a member of several Sweet Adeline quartets, singing either lead or baritone. With On The Edge quartet, she won a regional championship (in Harmony Heartland Region #4) and competed internationally. And, of course, she has sung with quite a few singers in the Festival's teaching quartets. She can even sing tenor in a pinch!
In her non-musical life, Deb is an interior decorator with a firm in downtown Louisville.
